Vergilian Park in Piedigrotta: Virgilio and Leopardi’s graves.
Under the Posillipo’s hill it is possible to discover one of the most hidden places in Naples, better known as the Vergilian Park in Piedigrotta.
It raises back to the S. Maria of Piedigrotta’s church and it is a few metres away from Mergellina station.
Although it is quite little known by most of Neapolitans, the park holds three very important monuments:
- Virgilio’s Tomb;
- Leopardi’s Tomb;
- The Neapolitan Grave (from latin: Crypta Neapolitana).
Let’s discover together, one by one, all these wonders.
